  • Grinderman
As the outdoor festival season begins to fade, the city's venues have begun solidifying their fall schedules, fine-tuning their furnaces, and undoubtedly stocking up on whiskey. It may not feel like it now, but we all know that the crippling cold will be here soon enough, and the city will have long forgotten West Fest, Wicker Park Fest, Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, and the other summer festivals that have already leaked from my brain.

Local talent buyers have been doing an admirable job of preparing for the onslaught of flannel and tight black knit caps. Lincoln Hall and the conglomerate of venues handled and booked by Jam Productions (the Vic, Riviera Theatre, Park West, Chicago Theatre) are the winners this week, with several notable show announcements, including Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77, Devotchka, Grinderman, Lissie, Shearwater with Damien Jurado, Sufjan Stevens, X Japan, and the XX with Warpaint.
